Voted the Best of West Hawaii since 2000 , the Island Breeze Lu'au and is located on the shores of Kamakahonu Bay and the historic grounds of the Courtyard Marriott King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel. An evening filled with delicious food and authentic Island entertainment. Highlights include the re-enactment of the arrival of Kamehameha I aboard an outrigger canoe, the unearthing of the imu (underground oven), preliminary arts and crafts where you have a chance to meet the performers, a 22-dish buffet, an open bar and the finale of the Siva Afi - spectacular Samoan Fireknife dance.

The day we attended the luau had been gorgeous, but rain came down from the mountains during the early evening, which I am told is not an uncommon experience on the island. They did not seem to have much of a plan to handle it - no shelter or indoor place to move the festivities. We were rushed through our... More

We visit the island in August, it was hot and humid, but the Island Breeze Lu'au made us forget about our sweaty backs. Starting with the people, they were great, courteous, friendly and kind. The food was in abundance and accompanied of tropical fruits. The dance performers excelled in their dances and cultural demonstrations. All in all, a highlight in... More

The MC did an amazing job interacting with the audience and getting everyone pumped up. A bad storm hit the Luau and the staff had ponchos ready and the show... More

I've been to probably a dozen luau over the years including some of the ones put on at the biggest Hawaiian hotels. We usually attend exause we have frinds or family who are with us on their first Hawaii visit. Until the Island Breeze Luau I said I don't like luau and never want to go to another. This one...

This is good for first time visitors. Unfortunately, we have been to several luaus and this was just average. The food was very good. The bar closed way too early. I got one drink and when I went back, it was closed. :-(

We have been to three different Luaus in three different locations and found this to be our favorite. Our teens stayed interested and engaged and the experience was family friendly. I would definitely recommend this Luau over a standard hotel Luau.

Attended the Luau with a group of fraternity brothers and our families. The check in process was a bit confusing, but went quick. The setting next to the water is perfect. The participants (actors) were great with the crowd, especially the kids. The food is typical of other Luau's, and the service is very good. The show was very entertaining,... More

We have visited Hawaii five times and have participated in three luaus. Two were on Oahu and the Island Breeze Luau was our first on the Big Island. Island Breeze is clearly the best we've attended. Both the show and the food were excellent! We paid the extra for priority seating and were glad we did. We were seated at... More
